Paul’s Cocktail Lounge
2 Avenue of the Americas
(at White St.)
More fancy than casual

Paul’s Cocktail Lounge, called Paul’s Baby Grand when it first opened, is Paul Sevigny’s cool kids’ hangout in the Roxy, as the Tribeca Grand hotel is now known. The decor is Palm Beach-on-acid maximalism, and the attitude, particularly at the door, can be ferocious.
